SuperMom: Mother of Four Runs Into Burning House to Save Her Kids

A mother of four from Michigan risked her life to save her children from their burning home. "The most heroic thing I've ever seen," said Lt. Derek Klink.

A mother of four from Chelsea, Michigan repeatedly ran back into her burning home to save her children from a fire last week. Mikala Vish was severely burned while rescuing her children who are ages 12, 6, 4 and 9 months.

“The most heroic thing I’ve ever seen,” Lt. Derek Klink told WDIV-TV. ”Mikala deserves all of the credit.”

Vish is in the hospital with second and third-degree burns on over 60% of her body and has a “very long road ahead of her,” according to a post on Facebook by the fire department. Vish’s six-year-old son also suffered burns “on his hands, feet, and back.”

A GoFundMe page has been set up for the family since they lost everything they own in the fire — the page has raised over $226,000 so far.

Money donated to the GoFundMe will go toward the family’s needs following the fire. Funds collected via the site will first be dispersed to Chelsea Area Fire Authority Local 1889 before going “directly” to the family, according to the campaign description.

“Please help to provide some relief to Mikala, and her four beautiful children, as she recovers from injuries she suffered in the fire,” per the campaign page.
